New issue 1769 by ben.hollis: Newlines in review summary cause ReviewBoard to error

What version are you running?

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?
The view-review page (internally hosted instance)

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Using post-review, create a review with a summary that has newlines in it.
2. Open up the review in your browser.
3. Try to publish the review.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I'd expect the review to publish. Instead, I'm given an error dialog. I can work around the problem by editing the summary to remove newlines and then publishing. The error looks something like this:

BadHeaderError: Header values can't contain newlines (got u'Review
Request: First line commit 1\nFirst line commit 2' for
header 'Subject')

Issue 1689 seems to be a specific case of this.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
FF 3.6/Windows. ReviewBoard hosted on RedHat Enterprise Linux 5.
